Tapirulan Illustration Contest is celebrating its first 15 years, so it is no longer a normal competition. Moreover, it considers it, rather proudly, a super competition, open to all superillustrators. Further, it believes that the artists are ready to surpass themselves and especially their competitors to be among the 48 artists who will have their work on display in the exhibition. At stake, for the overall winner, there is the super prize of 2,500 euros. At this point, it is perhaps superfluous to specify that the theme of the fifteenth edition of the competition for illustrators is SUPER.
The first prize awarded by the jury is 2,500 euros. The winner of the prize will be invited next year to make his own solo exhibition at the Tapirulan Gallery, with the publication of the personal catalog. The Tapirulan Contest also includes a Popular Prize of 500 euros.
Also, all 48 selected authors will receive a free copy of the calendar and catalog. The jury will select 12 authors to publish on the Tapirulan calendar and will receive a free copy.
